Highway to Hearing
Brian Johnson is ready to rock the stage once again upon the release of the Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens.
Johnson, former frontman of heavy metal band, AC/DC, was forced to leave during the band’s Rock or Bust Tour due to hearing complications. Luckily for Johnson, Steven Ambrose, an in-ear technology specialist, created the Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens (ADEL). The new device is an in-ear monitor that delivers louder and better sound while minimizing the risk of hearing damage.
“I was … able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now,” the singer said of the new technology.
Upon releasing a video about the in-ear monitor, Ambrose invited Johnson to try the device.
“Please don’t stop performing,” Ambrose said. “Help is on the way.”
After learning about the device, Johnson scheduled a meeting with Ambrose, and overall, was satisfied with the product. Johnson released the following statement on Ambrose’s facebook page:
“It WORKS. It just totally works and you can’t argue with that. I was really moved and amazed to be able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now. I can’t wait for it be miniaturized so I can use it in every situation from normal communication, going out to noisy restaurants, to performing live music on stage.”
The question still stands if the band will welcome back Johnson now that they have been performing with Guns N’ Roses’ frontman, Axl Rose, as their lead singer. The band’s future with Rose is unclear, but AC/DC’s guitarist, Angus Young, has said that he has no plans of retiring.
Whether this means continuing to perform with Rose or teaming up again with Johnson remains unknown.
